Vikas Lamani, attached to the APMC Yard police station, was on duty near JNMC Road on Kolhapur Circle here, when Superintendent of Police Narang (not in uniform) on regular rounds spotted a torn poster of a senior political leader (former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy ) and questioned the sub-inspector.
A babbling Lamani failed to give a satisfactory answer. Irked by his arrogant behaviour, Narang lost her cool and kicked him, with her footwear on.
Sonia Narang had earlier slapped legislator Renukacharya in Davangere
Disturbed by what he thought was a double affront, Lamani decided to kill himself. He whipped out his service revolver and tried to shoot himself, but fortunately his friends snatched the weapon away.
